Heat rain falls gently upon your skin;
The small, sparse drops just wafting
Down can’t soak through clothing thin.
Fall rain through summer gathers strength,
Sucks in water, swells to a throng,
Then slushes down through its long length.
Together rain mists while we laugh and run
For refuge, then find some small nook to wait,
Kissing, till our bliss will bait the sun.
Alone rain always pours so hard
nothing can keep it out.
